Short Story

Sons of Kronos is a board game in which players sail their ships across the ocean in an attempt to find the relics lost by Kronos and his sons. They are rewarded when they find pieces of the lost relics and win the game when they collect all pieces of the Omphalos stone.


Sons of Kronos is a game that is based on Greek mythology. When I started to gather inspiration I looked at many styles but settled on one that features rich colors and textures. Those colors and textures evoke the heavens, representing Zeus and his powerful lightning bolt; the sea, Poseidon and his mighty trident; and the underworld, Hades, and his helmet. They also show the contrast between the three locations and the enforce the role of each god in the game.
